We love this practice! We actually did not have an appointment; we came during the "walk-in" time first thing in the morning. I find it easiest to do that because those hours are the same everyday and are firs thing in the morning. That way, you don't have to wait long and I can get my child in and out and be at work just being a little bit late. We love Dr. G, but have seen most of the doctors there at some point and have had no complaints about any of them. They all are great with children and make a doctor's visit less stressful.
we love Dr. G. he consistently takes great care of our child and our child feels so comfortable around him which is so important for a doctor visit!
Dr. Gotkiewicz is an outstanding care provider. He was incredibly helpful and put us at ease during when our son was having some scary symptoms. We cannot say enough positive things about Dr. G.

it's always been a very pleasant experience
we love doctor G. My kids trust him.
Dr Edward Gotkiewicz identified my daughter's hip dysphasia at her 1 month appointment, because of his early detection and proactive approach we were able to intervene in a timely manner to avoid developmental delay and surgery.
Dr. G has extremely friendly bedside manner. He was thorough, explained everything very well to me and my son, was personable, took good time with us, and even followed up via phone call a few days later. then, another person from the office called to ensure my son was doing ok and to give us test results back. I'm so happy with his service, as well as CCP Mt. Lebo in general.

The only concern I have with this office is my son is in very good health, but we've been referred to a specialist after almost every well visit. He just turned one year old, and we were referred for a spina bifida test, a kidney test, talked about an orthopedic test, and now we've been referred to an ophthalmologist. I appreciate the precaution, but it seems overly precautious at this point.
My son well visit with doctor G was very good. Doctor G is a very good Doctor.
Dr G is always great! he is thorough, listens to not only my concerns but also listens to my child. I love that he speaks directly to my child. my kids feel comfortable with him and open up to him. we will continue to go to him for the entirety of their childhood. He better not retire anytime soon!
Dr. G always listens to our concerns, remembers and takes care with Mason's medical history, and provides great advice and suggestions during each visit.
he is good
Our kids have seen Dr. Gotkiewicz their whole lives. As we are about to transition our oldest (20) away from pediatrician care, Dr. G. has gone above and beyond to see our son quickly for an illness and to diagnose and treat him. We always appreciate his excellent care and attitude.
I know that my child gets best care possible.I can fully trust my child's care. I know she is in good hands.
I cannot say enough amazing things about Dr. G. He is always informative on our level and cares for our daughter. He is always in a good mood. He addresses our concerns or calms our fears. You can tell her really loves his job! I recommend him to all the new moms I talk to in my area!!

I have in the past and continue to recommend Dr. Gotkiewicz and CCP Mt Lebanon for their outstanding care and expertise in Pediatrics. Dr. Gotkiewicz is an experienced, patient, thorough, and kind to patients and their families. I have referred several people to see him based on my son's positive are experience. In a world where hospitals and health care systems are huge and growing by the minute, CCP Mt. Lebanon feels like a home town medical office where the doctors, nurses, therapists, and medical professions know your children and your family. I am very thankful to the practice and all the people in it, especially Dr. G!
Dr Gotkiewicz is caring and compassionate. He has such an amazing memory and takes his time listening and asking questions. He never rushes us and truly give my children time to speak.
I love seeing Dr. G. He is always friendly and personable...and takes the time to listen to our concerns. He's great at what he does!

We couldn't be luckier to have Dr. Gotkiewicz be our child's doctor. He brings a mix of vast knowledge with humor and has a way of putting my child at ease. Everyone we have seen in the office is great, but Dr. G is the best!!
Dr. Gotkiewicz provided excellent service and was very informative, respectful and courteous to both my child and me.
came into sick hours, though a short wait it was a timely appointment. Dr. G was through and did not appear rushed despite busy sick hour and that time was almost complete. Did not make me feel silly for bringing my child in despite the fact he did not have an ear infection.
very happy with care, service and support received every time we go call or interact with ALL staff
I appreciated that he offered us options, even if we ended up in the ER anyway (he couldn't have predicted that). My son and I appreciated his warm demeanor.
my experience is always excellent with Dr. G and the rest of the staff at the office. they make me feel comfortable during our stay and they always seem to be in a good or cheerful mood, even when they're busy.
I have been going to this office 25 years with my children.
Dr. Gotkiewicz is fantastic! The nurse, Alicia, was outstanding! She had to give my son 3 shots and her technique, compassion, kindness & patience with him were wonderful!

Dr G was very friendly, relatable and I felt they were all trying to go the extra mile to care for our family! thank you!
Exceptional doctor, was a patient since birth. Shortly after birth in 1999, Dr. Gotkiewicz diagnosed a condition that many doctors at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh were impressed and surprised he found this condition so early. If not for his quick diagnosis, the worst possible outcome could have happened.
Physician is approachable, knowledgeable, and has a great report with children, as well as parents,
We love Dr. G! No complaints.

Physician able to diagnose the problem and discuss what to do related to care.
The care providers are really so good and good listeners.
our visits with Dr. G are always great! no complaints.
We very much liked Dr.G's professionalism and bed side manner with my girls. Very easy going, he knew how to talk with them to get the answers he was looking for without overwhelming or making the girls nervous or shy. Very in depth and I felt like he listened a lot more than the nurse practitioner we normally see, where I feel rushed.
This is our 2nd visit to his practice, so happy we made the switch
Dr. G. is a gem. He is the reason we have stayed with CCP Mt Lebanon, even after we moved away from the area. He always takes his time with us, and gives caring and professional care to my child.
He seemed a little dismissive, I later had to go to the emergency room
Dr. Gotkiewicz always listens closely and has ideas on how to care for our current issue. He cares both what the parent says and the child and offers a great deal of respect.
